I am trying to have data organised so in terms of rows Card Name is 'Level 1' and Description is 'Level 2' in the pivottable. Then in terms of columns it would be sum of Quantity and GrosProfit.

Also I want to be able to filter by PostDate

Thanks

Thats perfect. How did you make the PivotTable column 'Descriptions' appear alongside 'CardName' rather than under it? I have required this many times! And then also only have the 'CardName' appear once per entry in the column?

Thanks

Hi recycleaus,

When you select a Pivot Table cell, you get a "PIVOTTABLE TOOLS" section containing two additional menus (ANALYZE, and DESIGN) added to your menus at the top of the Excel window / screen.

Selecting DESIGN will give you options to change the layout of your Pivot Table.

Under 'Subtotals', select 'Do Not Show Subtotals'
Under 'Report Layout', select 'Show In Tabular Form'

That should do it.
